Finance & PR: 5 Leading Financial PR Firms and Why They Stand Out
Financial PR is not only demanding, but also varied and complex. While offering PR professionals the opportunity to engage with the ever-changing financial markets, PR agencies have the role of advising a wide variety of financial professionals.
Fundamentally, financial PR professionals play novel roles in managing and improving reputations prior to Initial Public Offers (IPO) and Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A), and thereafter communicating appropriate messages to key audiences. Not only are Financial PR activities rewarding, but they also give communication professionals unfettered access to senior management teams, thus improving how stories are positioned to optimal effect.
Whilst Financial PR is uniquely rewarding, not all PR agencies are cut for the challenges therein. That said, working with a leading PR firm can make the difference between a successful IPO or M&A, or a complete flop. This article highlights five leading financial PR firms and what makes them stand out.

Within the financial space, the Finn-led agency has worked with TrinTech seeking to align the company’s legacy products as leaders in the financial services space.
